Havelock football coach Jim Bob Bryant appreciates the support his team receives from the community.

The football stadium was packed on Friday, not just for the game, but to pay tribute to Janie Queen – a 2010 Havelock graduate who lost her life in a car crash on Thursday afternoon.

Ribbons were been handed out, a moment of silence took place and balloons were set free in honor of Queen, a former Havelock cheerleader and softball player.

Bryant said Havelock is a tight-knit community.

It showed on Friday night.

“We are very close knit,” Bryant said. “That’s one of the reasons I came here was for the support that fans give to our school and athletes. I’m happy to be coaching at Havelock with a bunch of great kids, great coaches and great fans.”

The Rams went on to win the Coastal 3A Conference for the fourth-straight season with a 67-13 victory over West Carteret on Senior Night.
